It's still summer, y'all.

Nothing tastes any better in mid-August than what we call a YARD PIZZA!
Everything in this pizza (but the crust and cheese) was grown in our garden.... tomatoes, green peppers, onions, basil, oregano.

Next in the list of favorite mid-August meals is our homemade vegetable soup.
Again, most of the ingredients were hand picked from the garden!
We try to make enough soup to freeze for future dinner meals.
It's still summer, ya'll, but this soup reminds me of FALL 

Most of the summer squash, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes have been harvested/cooked/frozen/eaten.

Zucchini have been shredded and frozen for future dishes!

Signs of fall appear to be showing up in the garden, but it's still summer, y'all!!!
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will recall this one written on July 25th,
BEWARE of the Crawling Butternut Squash (click on link to read)
The last count for these Butternut Squash totaled 7, and won't be ready to pick until mid September.
I'll never understand how these heavyweights can hang from a vine!

 well as laying on the ground.

This is what I call 'eating local'!
Keep enjoying summer, y'all!
BTW... Fall Kale has been planted, and is already UP!
Bring on the Kale Smoothies♥
